What does Madd (mothers Against Drunk Driving) mean?

Mothers against drunk driving (MADD) originated in the United States in 1980. It is a non-profit organization dedicated to the goal of curbing underage and drunk driving. MADD has helped increase DUI penalties through aggressive drunk driving legislation and has created uniformity in DUI laws to make it illegal in every state to operate a motorized vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08%. MADD accomplishes their goals through: massive publicity campaigns to stop drunk driving, education for drivers and their victims, education in schools to reduce the incidence of underage driving, and advocating for victim impact statements to be used at DUI trials. Critics of MADD claim that some of their tactics and efforts have led to decreasing constitutional rights for all drivers.
